National Junior Honors Society (NJHS)

  • In order to be considered for NJHS, students must have a 3.667 cumulative GPA for first semester and have received 1's and 2's for citizenship.

    Shortly after first semester grades are submitted, Mrs. O'Connor will meet with  students that have met the GPA and citizenship requirements for consideration in joining the Holmes chapter of NJHS. 

    Students will get an invitation early in February and will meet with Mrs. O'Connor to find out the additional requirements and to learn more about the application process. One of those requirements will be 20 community service hours, so start collecting them now! Anything from the time a student leaves 6th grade until the applications are due in April can count for hours. Students will keep track of their own hours on a community service tracking form that will be made available at the beginning of each school year.

    8th graders who are members of NJHS will receive all communication through a special GOOGLE CLASSROOM site.
